What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Outbreak: Epidemic will strive to revitalize the co-op survival horror genre through a unique model where the community is key to building great content. Building the title alongside a passionate player base will allow us to iterate on feedback quickly and ensure the content and quality meets expectations before a full release is targeted. Game modes, scenarios, gameplay mechanics and other content will be directly driven by community interest.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This title will be in Early Access for a significant period. We will be building major content additions during this time and we expect it to last many months, if not longer before targeting a full release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will include all game modes, scenarios, gameplay mechanics and other content that will be designed and integrated during the Early Access period. You can expect more content to be added over time.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version supports single-player and co-op gameplay with up to four players. The Early Access version will be missing content like scenarios, game modes and other content that will be added during the Early Access period. Many core gameplay mechanics are present and will continue to be refined over time. You can expect that you'll be able to jump in with up to three friends and play content from the Campaign Mode, Onslaught Mode and Experiments Mode during Early Access. You should expect to experience some bugs including performance, gameplay, etc... during Early Access that will be corrected and polished over time.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. The title and any premium content will be sold at a discount to encourage a growing player base.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The community will be involved through our Steam discussion boards and our livestreams. We'll be directly soliciting feedback from players and using it to help refine and build the game.”

Outbreak: Epidemic Patch v3.0 Released! All New Scenarios!


Hey Survivors!

I'm excited to announce that v3.0 of Outbreak: Epidemic has been released, which features brand new scenarios, enhancements and fixes!

You now have access to the Depths campaign scenario, where the survivors will need to fight through a brutal underground maze to find safe passage into the city subway system. What horror will they uncover as they learn about the government's response to the epidemic? Grab your friends and experience the nightmare!

Next, check out the brand new Death Race experiments scenario! You have limited time to navigate the underground, find a necessary item and return to the train for repairs! Be careful - supply drops are spread thin and in dangerous areas - choose wisely when it's time to restock or when it's time to keep moving!

And finally, experience two brand new Onslaught Mode scenarios as you fight off waves of the undead in the underground!

All this new content takes place in a brand new location! In addition, this patch includes the following:
  • Ability to toggle your flashlight. (Bind this key in the Controls menu or restore your controls to default to use it if you've played before!)
  • Significant improvements to the spectator view to make it more smooth.
  • In-game UI and controls bug fixes to ensure menu navigation works correctly across keyboard and gamepad.
  • Significant improvements to enemy pathfinding to reduce cases of them getting stuck on game geometry.
  • Firing the shotgun when crouched no longer causes your player's animations to freeze.
  • Game size on disk, including memory used during gameplay, has been dramatically reduced.
  • Difficulty balancing and minor fixes across the entire game.

v3.0 also marks the transition of Outbreak: Epidemic to a paid title. Learn more about that decision here!

Note: If you purchased the Premium Content for Outbreak: Epidemic while it was a F2P title, you should still have access to the game. Reach out to me if you encounter any issues!

Thanks again for playing and I hope you enjoy the nightmare! Brand new content will be coming over the next several months!
